It's sizzling in the City!

Cape Town may be in temperate climes but the racing action this next week is really heating things up!

The CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale starts off on Thursday the 26th of January through Friday the 27th with a very strong catalogue of very well bred and well-related yearlings on offer. There is a lot of depth across the 350 lot book and it is bound to attract a strong buying market. We expect to see some exceptional horses and some record-breaking prices!

Saturday the 28th of January brings the running of the J&B Met! As always, it is the place to be on the last Saturday of January. The field could be quite open except for the presence of sparkling jewel, Igugu! The champion filly has run second only twice in her career and it will be thrilling to see if she can once again hold off the boys, as she did in the Vodacom Durban July!

THE TROUBLE WITH RESOLUTIONS!

Healthy Horse

Happy New Year!

2012 has already kicked off at a cracking pace...

The trouble with New Year's resolutions is that by the time one has made them and thought about implementing them, the year is already ticking along into February and onwards.

Some people don't belive that the new year is any different to the old, yet the difference of that second hand on the big clock ticking away the old year and heralding in the new has a pshycologically refreshing benefit for most of us.

It allows some wiping of the slates to allow us to start anew, whether within our physical or mental selves, work and ambitions, aspirations and goals. Whatever we are looking to change or improve, the new year certainly provides a renewed opportunity to focus on those things.

2012 has already kicked off at a cracking pace, particularly for Justin Snaith and the connections of Gimmethegreenlight who won the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate in a very exciting race. Our congratulations to all.

This month also sees the running of the J&B Met and the CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale to be held for two days before, on the 26th and 27th January. We wish all our Vuma customers the very best as they show off their horses to the world.

This year will also see a number of South African riders competing at the London Olympics and we look forward to watching their progress!

Speaking of refreshing; we have refreshed our bags, to a shiny, recyclable BOPP version. While keeping your feed fresher, they are very striking and hard to miss, so keep an eye out for the green and gold, as you will see them coming into your feed store.

To all our Vuma clients, we wish you the most successful and rewarding year ahead, knowing that Vuma will be there when it matters most.

SA HORSERACING : AN ENDING AND A BEGINNING IN CAPE TOWN

THE J&B MET AND THE CAPE PREMIER YEARLING SALE

Saturday's J&B Met saw the farewell parade for South Africa's favourite horse, Pocket Power! The 8-year-old gelding was officially retired to go and relax in Constantia after running 8th in the J&B Met. An emotional day for all his connections, particularly the Mike Bass stable, the son of Jet Master will long be remembered for his three Horse of the Year titles, incredible four Queen's Plate victories, three Met wins, as well as the dead-heat win in the 2008 Vodacom Durban July. The Vuma team wishes "Pocket" well.

The winner of the J&B Met was another son of Jet Master, Past Master, trained by Darryl Hodgson and owned by Hassan Adams - what a great and well deserved feat! This was Jet Master's fifth consecutive win in the J&B Met as a sire.

And in case anyone thought that Jet Master had not done enough for one weekend, he was also the leading sire at the inaugural Cape Premier Yearling Sale.

The sale kicked off last Thursday evening with a poignant video showing snippets of all our International, South African-bred winners to over 2000 people at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. From London News and Victory Moon to Gypsey's Warning and JJ the Jet Plane, they showcased the Proudly South African brand, while Mango Groove's Claire Johnston opened proceedings with her song "Special Star" and the South African anthem. Officially opening the sale before the first lot was sold was Premier of the Western Cape, Helen Zille.

As reported on the Bloodstock South Africa website: "The Cape Premier Yearling Sale ended on a high note Friday night. The inaugural two day sale sold 214 of the 270 yearlings that went through the ring (20 yearlings were withdrawn). The yearlings sold for an aggregate of R87,900,000.
The average price was R410,748, which was remarkable considering it was the first sale of it's kind.

Leading buyer was Form Bloodstock. They purchased 16 yearlings for an aggregate of R8,970,000. Second leading buyer was Singapore based trainer Pat Shaw. Shaw bought five yearlings for an aggregate of R7,250,000. Leading sire at the sale was Jet Master. The four times champion sire sold 21 yearlings for an aggregate of R15,585,000. Jet Master was also leading sire by average, with his yearlings averaging R742,143. Other stallions to sell well were Captain Al, Trippi, Silvano and Western Winter.

A great culmination of the Cape Summer season – Congratulations to all concerned from the Choice of Champions!

"Will you be where it's all at?"

The place to be for the next five days is the Mother City!

Cape Town is always full of exciting things to do but never more so than the next five days as the inaugural Cape Premier Yearling Sale gets underway at the International Convention Centre near the Waterfront. Wednesday 26th January is the first viewing day at the sales ground, with the sale itself kicking off on Thursday 27th at 4pm, until 9pm and continuing at the same times the following day.

Saturday sees the 129th running of the R2,5 Million J&B Met Grade 1 which promises to be a cracker, with the stalwart Pocket Power in his swansong appearance, against, among the field, his three stable mates as well as a strong hand from Mike de Kock, including Mother Russia, winner of the recent L'Ormarins Queen's Plate.

This new sale is bound to be very interesting with a strong catalogue, well represented by most of the top Cape Studs and a sprinkling from KZN. With the massive international interest in our SA bred horses, generated by the performances abroad of the likes of J J the Jet Plane, River Jetez, Jay Peg, Imbongi and Zanzamar, we can look forward to more than a few bids from international buyers!

Added to the reputation of our South African horses is the sheer value that they offer when compared to the purchase prices of yearlings bought at sales across the globe. Training costs are also less than elsewhere and no one really needs an excuse to visit our magnificent country!

We wish all of our Vuma clients  well and look forward to their continued successes! The Vuma team will be there in support, proudly South African and proud to feed your Champions!
